What you’re say­ing on Face­book and Twit­ter...

Rutherglen Reformer - - Primary Ones -

Peo­ple on our so­cial media sites were hor­ri­fied at our front page story last week.

Pen­sion­ers Archie and Janet Daly were at­tacked in their own home by masked thugs wield­ing CS Gas. Here’s what you had to say: “A de­spi­ca­ble vi­o­la­tion of a vul­ner­a­ble cou­ple in the sanc­tu­ary of their own home.

“Let us just hope that the sub­species re­spon­si­ble for this cow­ardly ac­tion are caught, con­victed and the max­i­mum sen­tence per­mis­si­ble un­der law is handed down.”- Mur­ray A Nix (via Face­book)

“Ab­so­lutely shock­ing”- Natalie Suther­land (via Face­book)

“Dis­grace­ful. Hope­fully some street jus­tice will be ad­min­is­tered swiftly to that scum”- Jim Mull­hol­land (via Face­book)

“Shock­ing stuff.”- Mags Graham (via Face­book)

“What’s the world com­ing too, not safe in their on house, hope they are ok”- Gil­lian Green­horn (via Face­book)

The pos­si­bil­ity of refugees be­ing housed in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang con­tin­ued to prompt de­bate:

“Hope the coun­cil­lors who made this mad de­ci­sion prac­tice what they preach, again what about our kids, fam­i­lies, all on wait­ing list for houses are they to be for­got ? A just hope peo­ple re­mem­ber who is push­ing for this and don’t vote for them”- Davy Robert­son Oneil (via Face­book)

“we have plenty of our own who are wait­ing for a house, If politi­cians want to be voted in, they should think again.”- Mar­garet Brown (via Face­book)

The is­sue of school buses shows no signs of go­ing away:

“Surely chil­dren’s safety is of im­por­tance no mat­ter what cost ! And to walk that in the win­ter weather wouldn’t be very nice with low temps an ice an all so for safety rea­sons but the coun­cils can spend money on things that are of no or lit­tle use.

Time to get ur act to­gether al­ways help­ing peo­ple from other coun­try’s an for­get­ting our own sort it out an be­fore any­one says an be­ing racists no am not sick of our own peo­ple born here an breed here be­ing treated like sec­ond class”- St­eff Blue (via Face­book)

“Got a let­ter home from school say­ing that lunchtime cross­ing pa­trols are also be­ing stopped from next month, says a risk as­sess­ment has been done and they are not needed, does a child have to be killed be­fore these peo­ple get pri­or­i­ties in the cor­rect or­der”- Liz Young (via Face­book)

“tell them to stop in­vest­ing money in roads that aren’t needed and then there might be money for buses! #sayno­to­cathk­in­re­liefroad and use the coun­cil’s cut of the cost for this white ele­phant to pay for school buses for at least the next 3 or four years.”- Jac­que­line McEwan (via Face­book)

“But we can take 20,000 im­mi­grants with no Hous­ing for them ??”- Garry Stewart (via Face­book)

Fi­nally, there was sup­port for Pa­tri­cia Mor­row who wants a per­ma­nent trib­ute to Bobby Mur­doch in Ruther­glen:

“Yes then Colin Jack­son”- Davy Robert­son Oneil

“get this hap­pen­ing!!”- Scott McCorry (via Twit­ter)
